Choosing Paint Colours for Living Rooms

Don’t know where to start when choosing paint colours for your living room? Look to the colours in the other elements of the room for inspiration – art, throw pillows, area rug – and choose a wall paint colour the same as, lighter or darker than a colour in one of these pieces.

Trim and mouldings add architectural interest to any living room. Paint these details the same colour as the walls for a contemporary take or highlight these decor features with a contrasting paint colour.

A feature wall is a great way to add a pop of a contrasting colour to a neutral living room without committing to painting the entire room. Pick the wall that is the natural focal point, often the wall opposite the entry to the room.
